RE: samsung ps 518500 motion issue

I've read that pausing a DVD then pressing play causes judder a second or so after you resume the film. This also happens sometimes after a programme cuts to a new scene.

Is this what you're referring to?

Don't have this tv but I'd check in 'picture' sub menu and turn off any motion 'enhancer' settings.

The more information you provide, the more precisely people can help. Does the picture jitter when watching ordinary TV, or only when watching DVDs and Blu-Rays, etc. I've briefly seen your set in John Lewis, it looked fine, but then I wasn't watching it for jitter!

RE: samsung ps 518500 motion issue

Just to be clear, we're talking about judder rather than jitter. (They're not the same thing.)

What you describe doesn't sound like the very mild issue I've read about, so I'd agree with the poster above; disable all motion processing options to start with (these are often switched on by default when you first use the TV). Hopefully this will do the trick, though you might experiment with different processing options and see what suits you personally.

In the overwhelming majority of cases, it's best to disable motion processing on plasma TVs, as it causes more problems than it solves.

Hi, when you say normal tv, is it via tv inbuilt tuner or sky? I had issues with judder recently that only occured periodically & lasted a few seconds, it was the 4 year old sky hd+ box to blame, swapped box judder disappeared.

RE: samsung ps 518500

Hi guys, had to post this here, as i couldnt create a new topic for some reason!

Recently i noticed two white dots on my screen. John Lewis arranged for an engineer to call. Their TV repair agent phoned me to say there was no need to look at it first, we will order a new screen. By the time they arrived I had realized this was light permeating through the vent holes in the back. I pointed this out but the engineer was intent on changing the screen saying that it was probably a problem with the screen (changing the screen did not solve this). My big problem is, however, despite using my original settings and various alternatives the picture is inferior on the new panel. On complaining to JL the repair company sent a different engineer who had no idea why the screen had been changed, as this was not going to solve the original problem. Despite my repeatedly telling him how the picture was so inferior to the previous panel he told me this could not be possible as all panels were identical. He kept enthusing how the picture was superior to his (Loewe), he would happily take my screen home, and there was nothing he could do as it was not faulty. And this was reported to John Lewis. John Lewis have told me that as there is no perceived fault and we are in the first year of the guarantee, this is down to Samsung. After protestation the repair company on JL's request have agreed to have the TV in for testing. In my opinion the picture is not now commensurate with the TV at this price level. Any comments guys?

cheers gel, just to give you a sense of confidence in the engineer that visited, he said he had never heard of calibrating a tv ,but if you did it would ruin the board[?]. an d invalidate the warranty.Top man.

That's odd.

Can you be more specific about how the picture is now inferior?
